What hue is nervy hue then? Inquiring minds and all that....

It's a vivid guacamole in the "Energetic Brights" group, but unfortunately the online color selection does great injustice to the actual paint sample. I just love their silly color names.

Perhaps the "humor" in "humorous green" is less a reference to amusement and more a reference to bodily fluids, possibly infected and/or necrotic.

One could even interpret it as a double entendre. Imagine it splashed across a mortuary preparation room's ceiling, as might happen during an episode of "America's Funniest Aspirator Accidents."

Also of interest is a hue among the darker oranges, #6349, called simply "Pennywise." But is it named for a coin or the homicidal clown-demon from Stephen King's "It"? (I can't count the punk band among the inspirations without again crediting Stephen King, who inspired them.)

Thank you
